Chiltern Open Air Museum, Chalfont St Giles, Bucks

Looking for somewhere to go with the kids? Why not take them time travelling? Join us at the Chiltern Open Air Museum for a hands-on journey through 2,000 years of living history, captured perfectly through our exciting events programme and in our collection of genuine historic buildings.

Little Known Facts:
1. The Museum houses over 30 reconstructed traditional Chilterns' buildings covering 2000 years of history from the Iron Age to Second World War, including a newly reconstructed Wychert (limestone earth) cottage from Haddenham in the Aylesbury Vale. To our knowledge, no one has built a wychert cottage since the 1930s. Also our new Information Centre is housed in Astleham Cottage, reputed to be one of Henry VIII's hunting lodges.
2. The Museum holds over 25 themed events each season including Medieval Knights, the Roman Army, Classic Vehicles, crafts and Halloween. At our heavy Horse events did you know you can see Shire Horses, Percheron, Clydesdale and Belgian?
3. The Museum has been used recently for many film locations including Downton Abbey which featured Chiltern Open Air Museum, Horrible Histories, Call the Midwife and Midsomer Murders in 2011.
